WOOT!  Finally beat the Black Garden last night with the help of my Brother-in-Law.  So my new question is... how the heck do I get "Light" armor so I can go above level 20?

I have 3 32 characters. And I would focus on getting your vanguard rank up first through bounties, public events and strike playlist . It's at the point if I delete a character I can usually get to 26-28 in 2 days from level 1.

Total noob to this game but I am loving it.  Playing it on my gaming PC.  My biggest problem is that I keep forgetting to HOLD down the LCTRL key for the grab so I end up just throwing the orcs a little bit rather than opening up the Drain/Interrogate/Shank options.  Considering using a console style gamepad but making precision head shots is SOOOOOO easy with the mouse.

You know... I actually quite like the iOS game Kings Road. Quite a nice little Diablo 3 clone.

House Rules  - 
 
I'm a fan of both Rifts and Robotech but one thing always bothered me with the Palladium rules for mecha.  You may have mecha that is absolutely bristling with weaponry BUT unless stated in the weapon description you can't fire any more than one weapon per melee attack.  This REALLY doesn't make sense given that a simple press of a button or pull of a trigger can fire off an insane number of weapons.  In particular I am thinking of the Tomahawk from Robotech with its pair of gun clusters.  Any reason why you can't fire every weapon in the clusters off at once so long as all weapons are in range?
So... this all being said I'm thinking about removing the limit to the number of weapons able to be fired with one attack.  Obviously this will make mecha like the Tomahawk much more deadly but I think it should be.  It'll also make enemies more conscious about the ranges they are engaging at.  The closer you get to a Tomahawk the more weapons you are in range for.  Optimal range will be in range for your own weapons while minimizing the greatest number of the enemy weapons.
Thoughts?

I'd probably require a Read Sensory Equipment skill check, with an increasing penalty based on how many weapons you wish to fire at once. If the check fails, you end up basically firing "blind."

I just picked up Battletech: A Time of War and would love to run a game.  However, I'm drawing a blank on adventure ideas beyond what would be a plain old Battletech game.  I'm asking community members to submit adventure seeds for a RPG game that would involve adventures both inside and outside mechs.

Got an audio question for PS3 users.
I have a bluetooth headset and I want chat to go through it but the rest of the game audio to go through my TV.  So far it appears it is all or nothing... all sound through the TV, including chat or all sound through my headset, also including the chat.  Has anyone had any luck splitting them up and if so can you please tell me what your PS3 and Destiny audio settings are to do it?

I have a wired headset, but I'm sure the settings are the same. 

Go to settings> accessory>  Audio device settings. then change both input and output so it says whatever the name of your device is (so for me it says "turtle beach px22"). 

Then in destiny, go to chat options and select headset only.
Finally, turn the game volume slider on your headset all the way down.

What is the easiest way to advance monsters to keep them a challenge for your players?    I'm considering running a Midnight 2E Campaign using Pathfinder but one thing I always hated about 3E was the time it took to stat up a humanoid enemy.  I need Orcs to be the main antagonists throughout the game but I have a problem with 1) all Orcs having the same feats and 2) do I really need to build them up like a character and assign all stats and skill points so I have the right stats for feat eligibility?  How do all of you do it?

+Jon Sadler has what I do. Really, think about what the players see. Do they know the high priest of orc god Blurgle is actually the level 9 human Death Priest? not unless you tell them.
remember you can also use the monster codex for a few, make a few generic ones and update them every few levels... for the most common foes.

Question regarding robot vehicles:  Since you can only fire one weapon (or linked weapons) with a single melee attack why would you bother using anything but the best weapon?  Is there a reason for vehicles to be bristling with weapons when the rules don't support weapon groups or "Alpha Strikes" where you fire off everything at once?

Question:  What is the best way to go about creating 3D hex terrain tiles?  I was thinking about an aluminum hex "Cookie Cutter" you could use to cut hexes out of blocks of foam.  Does anyone have a good place to buy a roll of hex printed paper of the correct scale to create cutout templates?

I've been out of the Battletech/Mechwarrior circles for years.  Used to play it in jr high and high school quite a bit.  Looks like the setting has progressed quite a bit since I played (the Clan invasion was the big thing then).  What is the best way to get caught up in what all has been going on in the Inner Sphere in my absence?  Not really looking to spend months reading Battletech novels.

That's not an easy question to answer.

Maybe start here:  http://www.sarna.net/wiki/History

 You might want to post your question to the forums, like  http://bg.battletech.com/forums/
or  http://www.lordsofthebattlefield.com/forum/viewforum.php  (maybe the BEST fan site).

There is also the history of the game itself. FASA closing down, transfer of the license through FanPro, Wizkids, Hasbro, Topps, and Catalyst. There's been lots of water under the bridge.

I haven't played SC2 in a while but came back to it recently and for some reason the gameplay stutters to the point that it is pretty unplayable.  Anyone know what is going on?
